Outschool's mission is to inspire kids to love learning. We provide small group classes that meet over live video chat where learners are connected with teachers and classmates who share their interests. These classes are offered through our marketplace and conducted on our remote learning platform.

We're growing fast: over 30,000 families have enrolled in classes, and we're doubling our team this year. We're an experienced team with past accomplishments at Airbnb, Square, Uber, Udemy, Amazon, Google, and many startups. We came together because we wanted to make a difference in education, and saw the opportunity to empower learners, teachers, and parents. Now we have a successful, fast-growing business and recently announced $8.5M Series A funding.

We’re now looking for an experienced, hands-on leader to own key business functions and strategic projects. Fast team and business growth means we need more leadership capacity to take advantage of our opportunities. We need your help to lead, organize and execute.

* Own key business functions such as Finance, Legal and HR.
* Provide structure and accountability on strategic objectives across the company.
* Hire and manage key vendors and contractors.
* Personally execute a wide variety of tasks to help move our business forward. You may get hands-on with customer development, product scoping, marketing campaigns or customer success depending on your experience and changing business needs.
* Over time, build out and manage the team to hit your functional and strategic goals.
* Represent our culture and mission internally and externally, setting an example to others.

What we're looking for:
* 5-10 years’ operational leadership experience.
* Experience building an organization in a high-growth startup environment.
* Track record of setting and hitting high-level business goals.
* Functional experience managing some of: HR/recruiting, legal/compliance, finance, risk.
* Leadership skills: think strategically, communicate persuasively, act ethically, persist.
* Management skills: set objectives, give feedback, communicate clearly, plan work, monitor progress, develop people, encourage creativity, prioritize.
* Domain experience in K-12 education, consumer or marketplace products is a plus.
